" mr. president, jon kyl is the real thing. during 18 years in the senate preceded by eight in the house, jon has built a reputation that is a perfect image of his characteristic. national magazines have named him one of america's best -- ten-best senators, one of the world's most influential people, and one of our nation's hardest-working lawmakers. his unanimous election in 2008 as our republican whip and his recognized leadership on the great challenges of our time throughout th
